Church Notes Deb Kennedy, CHH ’73 reports that it was another enjoyable reunion for the Church Home & Hospital Alumni who attended Alumni Weekend. Twenty-six Church Home alumni attended the lovely luncheon including ten “Golden Girls” from the Class of 1962 and three “Platinum” honorees from the Class of 1942! As tradition, the special 50th anniversary honorees and the Platinum honorees were given gift bags. Special thanks to Joan Bachtell, ’62 for all her work in getting so many of their classmates together for their reunion and congratulations to all of the honorees on their milestones.
It’s hard to believe that it has been nearly nine years since Church Home & Hospital Alumni merged with Hopkins and started a scholarship to help others obtain the nursing education they so desperately want. The scholarship can only be as powerful as we make it through our generosity and commitment. Twice we have given $100,000, and in 2014 I want us to add another lump sum. To date, we have pledged a little more than $17,000. Please consider adding to this effort and giving whatever you can. If you want to talk about giving and how easily this can be done, please contact Deb at 410-893-2421 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
